Snuff or dark brown. Tan suede is a spring/summer color IMO. Snuff is the best all around IMO.

I want to say Joe from TSM said they had a pair in 10.5D.  I was so awestruck from the ravello NST that it's all a blur...

Fine collection my friend!  Color 8 is without a doubt, King...

Wow, beautiful boots, beautiful photos! Are you intentionally sticking with Barries due to fit/comfort, or is it just coincidental that you've liked/found these configurations?

Very angry right now.


That's a shame.  I absolutely love Alden's snuff suede.  Great looking boot.  I hope you find it, if not, I hope you find another one.  All the best...

No need to apologize. I hate signature required. I work for a living and it's tough to make arrangements. Fortunately I've been lucky but I truly feel for you. They look like sweet boots at a great price.

Stealing mail is a federal crime covered under Section 1708 of Title 18 of the United States Code. Be sure to file a report AND check with your homeowner's policy, it might be covered!

That sucks.

My maildude doesn't even leave the sign and redeliver slip anymore. They just forward it to the local non-post office package center for pickup. Thankfully that place is fairly convenient for me.

Thanks! I like the Barrie for fit and comfort, it works really well for me. I tried Grant boots in several sizes/widths and just could not get it to work for me; D was too narrow in the front and E was too wide in the heel. With an 8D Barrie, it is like someone traced my foot, fits beautifully. I do like the look of the last too, looks great on boots which is what I normally wear.

Thanks! And thanks for your care tips on the forum, I only brush and buff these as you recommend and they come out looking great. :)

Got my Whiskey LWB's ordered from TSM this past weekend. And while I'm no expert I can say without equivocation that these shoes are not seconds. They are absolutely flawless and I couldn't be more pleased.







I have examined these with a fine tooth comb and there is not one flaw with these shoes. I could not be happier. Timing is truly everything.

fuuuuu I didn't even think about whisky LWB when I placed my order over the weekend. those look great
